Friday Finds/B

 a. The letter B

A bit skewed, but it IS a B, isn't it?  Yep, you would be correct to think...

 Original photo

this is the top of a window that has been turned 90° and cropped.

b. Week's favourite photo

It's never easy for me to choose a favourite photo, but this blue jay was delighted to find a peanut not  grabbed by local squirrels.

 c. Outdoors

Ice formed on the creek when the water was a tad higher but stuck to the cattail stems when the water lowered a bit.

RedPat said...

Love the happy Blue Jay, EG!

Lowell said...

I really like the bird, too. Now, if he can just find a good table, with the right linens and silverware and a glass of wine, he'll be all set!

Halcyon said...

I LOVE your bluejay. I saw many when back home this holiday, but couldn't get any shots of them. They're too quick, or I'm too slow!

The B is brilliant EG! And such a cute little fellow!

Sandra said...

LOVE the B and knew what it was and still loved it. and the bird is so funny, like the peanut is way to big for him but he will have it.

Laura said...

Great finds… I love the ice on the water.

Marleen said...

The first 2 finds are brilliant! It's a perfect B, and the Blue Jay is amazing.

Sylvia K said...

Ah, your pics have taken my breath away one more time, EG!! I love them, of course, as always!! The blue jay is priceless!! Thank you for the smiles and the giggles! Have a wonderful weekend!!

William Kendall said...

That jay is a beauty!

Amy at love made my home said...

Very creative! xx

Revrunner said...

No ice like that here yet.

Pamela Gordon said...

You have a good eye to find the letter "B" in that window. What a great photo of the bluejay with the peanut. So cute! Have a great weekend.

genie said...

That us a happy bluejay and a great shot of him. I have not seen any around the house so far this winter and really hope they visit someone else instead of here. They eat all of my other birds’ food. The B capture is really cool Very clever.

What a cheeky wee jay!

Ruth Hiebert said...

Yes,that is a B,why not. I love the ice photo,of course the Blue Jay is always a stunning beauty.

Cloudia said...

Iridescent Jay, and good eye crop fun!

Lea said...

When it comes to the alphabet, we have to use whatever we can find!
Love the Jay, and the ice on the creek is beautiful!
Have a great week-end!

Thank you so much for joining in. Very creative for the letter B! Those birds amaze me when they take those whole peanuts. I love that shot for outside. The ice reminds me of a painter's pallet.

Jeanne said...

Great pictures! We have two different kinds of jays here: Scrub Jays and Stellar's Jays.

Rose said...

Oh, I would be so happy with that Blue Jay pic, too.

Stephanie said...

Gorgeous Blue Jay image!

Kathy said...

Love the blue jay. That peanut is almost too big for his mouth!

Margaret Adamson said...

Very clever with the B shot and I love the Jay photo

pattisjarrett said...

Clever! That's a perfect B. Blue Jays are funny. We had one that wouldn't leave unless it had two peanuts crammed in there. Sometimes it took a while to get just the right sizes, but I guess it didn't want to make two trips--someone else might get to the peanuts before it could get back. Nice outdoor scene, capturing the broken layer of ice.

Nancy Chan said...

You have found a perfect B. The Blue Jay is very pretty and he got a peanut bonus!

Kay said...

Hooray! Great "B."
Love the blue jay. We don't have as many of them in Washington as we did in California...and yours have prettier markings, I think, than our scrub and Stellar's jays.

eileeninmd said...

Great collection. I like your "B" shot, very creative. The Blue Jay is beautiful. Have a happy weekend!

Tom said...

Wonderful ABC, I'll be waiting for DEF.

Jeevan said...

Cool shots and I love the frame on window! Hope the bird don’t swallow the peanut along the shell.

John @ Sinbad and I on the Loose said...

I like the ice apron around the cattails. But you outdid that with the blue jay shot.

Anvilcloud said...

Well I'll B. That was clever of you.

Alica said...

I absolutely love your photography! No I remember who it is that's doing the letter photos...can't wait to see more!

Patty Woodland said...

I love the Blue Jay - I so miss them. We don't have them here in Montana. I used to love watching them when I lived in NJ. I do have magpies which are very entertaining cousins.

Crystal said...

Oh I love that B, how creative! And the blue Jay looks like hes gonna swallow that peanut whole but great picture!

Jim said...

Pretty pictures all the way, Ms. EGTG. I like your 'finds' for the letters so far. I think "C" will be a picture of the crescent Moon. But tonight is officially the "New Moon" so hurry.

Candy C. said...

Clever "B", I love it!! The jay certainly does look pleased with his peanut. :)

Judith @ Lavender Cottage said...

Aha, you sneaky gal turning that window on its side - makes a really nice 'B' though! Great shot of the blue jay, I miss having a feeder on our raised deck to capture the birds.
Raining all day and turning to snow this afternoon, rollercoaster weather as Frankie Flowers likes to say.

Su-sieee! Mac said...

Your B is very clever. Both the peanut guzzling bird and ice circling the cat tails are amazing!
